“Do not fall in love with your idea. Fall in love with the problem.” @thatwillneverwork

Ever heard of Netflix?

Well, you almost didn’t.

Because when Netflix co-founder Marc Randolph first got the idea, everyone told him it would NEVER work. But he decided to trust his gut — and turned his “crazy” idea into a $100 billion company anyway.

And Netflix was just the beginning.

With four decades in business and seven successful start-ups under his belt, Marc now uses his wealth of experience to mentor aspiring entrepreneurs, including the co-founders of Looker Data, which was recently sold to Google for $2.6 billion.

Now he’s on MarieTV to share the Netflix secret that can turn your ideas into reality, too.

In this episode, we dive into Marc’s new book, That Will Never Work: The Birth of Netflix and the Amazing Life of an Idea, which answers questions like, How do you begin? How do you deal with failure? What does “success” really mean? But we don’t stop there.

You’ll also learn:

  • The story they don’t tell you about Netflix.
  • How to trust your instincts (even when others disagree).
  • What makes an idea worth a billion dollars.
  • The #1 strategy to turn your business ideas into reality — WITHOUT neglecting your life.

If you want to know what it takes to start and grow a successful company — without giving up family, friends, or the hobbies that feed your soul — this is a must-watch.

DIVE DEEPER: Learn how to start an online business — even if you don’t have money or tech skills — and five steps to decide what business to start.

Now Marc and I would love to hear from you.

What dream would you pursue if you knew without a doubt that you would succeed?

So many of us don’t even dare to name the dream because of what others might say. Because of what would happen if we failed. Because what might happen if we succeed!

Today, I want you to let yourself dream. Pop it in a comment below, and leave a piece of encouragement and support for someone else before you go. We all need those voices of reassurance and encouragement in our lives. Today, you can be that for someone else.
